I never thought, especially as a kid, that UM-Utah would be an even match up. The mighty truly have fallen. IMO, a win here is the difference between a New Year's Day bowl and 7-5 for UM.

I'll be honest here - I won't actively root for them, but it sure would be nice to see someone other than OSU and MSU become relevant on the national stage. I'd prefer that it was almost anyone else in the conference, but if it has to be them, so be it.

You just have to accept him for who he is - loud, brash, and intentionally stepping on toes in a condescending way. I'm fine with him, but can only handle him in doses.

I agree with the assessment that MSU is the best "second best" team in any conference, but there is a steep drop from the Spartans to Wisconsin, Nebraska, and PSU, then a drop to Iowa and UM, then a really steep drop to NW and Maryland, and then, the real dregs of the conference, of which there are far too many.

they are replacing 4/5 OL this year

And that David Cobb guy was pretty damn good too. IMO, they do take a big step back this year. They'll probably end up 3rd-4th in the B1G West (5-3 or 4-4). Then again, maybe Kill finally has them to the plug and play level on offense where Wisconsin has been for two decades.

I believe it's pronounced, "Rude-lick."

Ramzy does it again, the only football blog ever that could possibly bring tears to my eyes. Thank you for reminding us again that experiences are so much more meaningful based upon the people with whom you experience them.

Bravo, Ramzy, Bravo!

It was nice of Key and Peele to give the BTN a hand with their graphics.

Well Suh did win it, for Ingram. If Nebraska's not in that Big 12 Champ game, McCoy takes home the trophy. If guys like Suh, Roy Williams, Derrick Johnson, and Terrell Suggs can't even sniff the Heisman after the seasons they had, and impact on a play by play basis, then no defensive player can. Woodson was the best player in the country that season, but he won largely based on two things - preseason and season long momentum that led to a huge groundswell of support for a defensive player deserving the Heisman, and Manning's usual choke job versus UF. Woodson single handedly (with an assist from Stanley Jackson) won the OSU-UM game. UM overachieved and UT underachieved. IMO, Woodson's Heisman was more of a team reward, and simply a nod to every defensive player who had ever deserved it (cough, cough Jack Tatum and Hugh Green) before him.

I'd be more interested to know when an OLineman is going to win it. There have been plenty of years when the best play in the nation was a Tackle, but because they don't accrue stats, they don't stand a chance.

Let me just get this out of the way first, if you're going to be a condescending jerk about it, at least use correct grammar.

do I NEED TO REMIND YOU they handed us are ASS, not once, but twice

OUR, not are. Additionally, are you referring to the Outback Bowls after the 2000 and 2001 seasons?!? Those were a decade and a half ago. In fact they were in last year of the Cooper (two coaches ago!) and first year of the Tressel (the man who left 5 years ago!) eras. Dude, the players on this team were like 5-6 years old back then. How the hell is that even relevant?!?!

Both A&M & TN is better than any of those sorry band of losers....

Is should be used only for singular nouns and pronouns. TWO is more than singular. So, you actually could have used "are..."

Look at OSU's schedule and look at SC's. Seriously look at them. The SEC East is not nearly as good as the B1G East. With SC's schedule, I'd give OSU and MSU a better than average chance of running the table. I really do see 8-9 wins for PSU or UM in there, which is more than SC will have, IMO. People love the "team X would run the table in Y conference" argument, so let's have it. With SC's schedule, I could see OSU, MSU, Nebraska, Wisconsin, and maybe PSU winning at least 9 games, and Iowa, Minnesota, and UM grabbing at least 8 W's, and maybe winning the SEC East. Could the same be said if SC played their schedules? I don't know. But, they're not that good and the SEC East is pretty awful outside of a UGA team that has no QB and hasn't won a big time bowl game since Herschel donned the G.

I think that's everyone's point - It's not like SC is playing of bunch of world beaters, but they don't have to because everyone unfairly gives SEC teams a pass when it come to their OOC schedule. That may be pretty fair for the SEC West, which is very good, but UGA, Tennessee, SC, and Mizzou wouldn't be given any consideration as top 25 teams if they were in any other conference.

Think of this entire discussion this way - what would "SEC fans" (I still can't believe that's a thing. Anyone ever heard of an American League Central fan?) say if Illinois bitched about how easy Missouri's schedule was? Hell, what would we say?
